“I want to thank the President for giving me the opportunity to serve for such a long time. Now that I missed out, at least I should have continued serving my people as MP but that was God’s plan. I am a medical doctor, so I will serve my people along that line because I did it before joining politics,” he said.
Dr Tumwesigye, who served as Sheema Municipality and Sheema North MP for the last 20 years, lost to former Uganda Revenue Authority commissioner in charge of customs, Mr Dickson Kateshumbwa, in the General Election.
